Elminster fights for the future of Faerûn in this stirring climax to the Sundering series, from the creator of the Forgotten Realms
Chaos grips Faerûn as vainglory, prophecy, and ancient forces comingle in the shadows cast by war. Agents of the Shadovar lurk in the corners of Candlekeep in search of the arcane secrets that will power their war machine toward Myth Drannor. Gods and their Chosen run amok, all in a gambit to seize power. And a threat foretold by an ancient seer stirs.
At the heart of it all, Mystra—the great Goddess of Magic—has withdrawn from the world. Without her protection, Elminster, her greatest champion, fears for the nascent Weave, the fabric of magic Mystra wields to bind Faerûn. Will the Nightseer Shar, mistress of the great and fearsome Shadovar, seize the opportunity to blanket the world with her Shadow Weave?
With the help of Storm Silverhand and his protégé, Amarune, Elminster works frantically to strengthen the Weave’s tethers and forestall what seems an inevitable reckoning. But other interests machinate for their own sinister ends. As the Sundering draws nigh, Elminster and his heroic cohort must see the signs for what they are. The choice of worlds lies in the balance.
The Herald is also loosely connected to the Elminster series and Sage of Shadowdale series.
Pointless, mindless drivel from an author that lacks imagination and overcompensated with a choppy poorly written story upheld through the unending power of a thesaurus. Waste of time and money.
